When you were here before

Couldn't look you in the eye

You're just like an angel

Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather

In a beautiful world

I wish I was special

You're so fuckin' special



But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.

What the hell am I doing here?

I don't belong here.



I don't care if it hurts

I want to have control

I want a perfect body

I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice

When I'm not around

You're so fuckin' special

I wish I was special



But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.

What the hell am I doing here?

I don't belong here.



She's running out again,

She's running out

She's run run run running out...



Whatever makes you happy

Whatever you want

You're so fuckin' special

I wish I was special...



But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo,

What the hell am I doing here?

I don't belong here.

I don't belong here.

About Creep

"Creep" is the first single released by the English alternative rock band Radiohead, and is a track on their debut album Pablo Honey (1993). It was written by the band's singer, Thom Yorke, and released in the United Kingdom initially in September 1992. When it was first given limited release, however, Radio 1 found it "too depressing", and removed it from their playlist after airing it only twice. However, it subsequently became one of the band's biggest hits, and became their only Top 40 hit in the United States until 2008's "Nude", despite the success of their future albums in the country. The song re-entered the UK chart at number 37 on 8 June 2008, as a result of downloads, following the release of Radiohead's The Best Of album earlier that month.

Covers
First should be stated that Creep itself may be considered as a cover song, based on a famous song by sixties band The Hollies. The name of the song was The Air That I Breathe and was written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazelwood.

In April 2008, Prince covered 'Creep' at Coachella. This version was captured on a video from a concert-goer's cell phone, and promptly uploaded to Youtube. However, it was quickly taken down at Prince's request. After finding out about the blocking, Thom Yorke was quoted as saying, "Well, tell him to unblock it. It's our song."

band Weezer covered "Creep" during their 2008 Hootenanny Tour with bassist Scott Shriner on lead vocals. Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo stated that the song was picked to cover because "it's incredible what they do with four chords, over and over."

band Korn covered "Creep" on their unplugged album.

Anberlin covered "Creep" in Lost Songs.

Scarling covered "Creep" on their single of Band Aid Covers the Bullet Hole.

Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls commonly covers "Creep" in concert, but her most popular version of this is her preforming the song in a crowded bar which is available on her personal Youtube account.

Sentenced covered it on the special edition of their 1998 album Frozen.

German songwriter Gunter Gabriel covered the song live in 2009 with new (German) lyrics and under the title "ich bin ein Nichts" (i am nothing).
